Welcome to Oakwood 



Here is a place "where loveliness keeps house," 

.... where "true education" means more than the pursual of 
a certain course of study, 

.... where the Oakwood program of Christian education is 
focused both on Christian growth and academic excel- 
lence, 

.... where students from scores of states and foreign lands 
"enter to learn and depart to serve," and 

.... where both teacher and student find a common bond of 
unity as "companions in learning and searching for 
truth." 

Look through these pages and get a view of Oakwood College. 
Behold its emphasis on the spiritual, its viable academic pro- 
gram, its student-centered aaivities, its beautiful campus, its 
modern physical plant, and all that go together to make Oak- 
wood a place "where loveliness keeps house." 

LOCATION 

Oakwood College is located five miles northwest of the heart 
of the city of Huntsville. Huntsville is a cosmopolitan city located 
in the north central portion of the state of Alabama and nestled in 
the beautiful Tennessee Valley at the foothills of the Appalachian 
Mountains. It has a population of 160,000. 

The College property consists of 1.185 acres at an elevation of 
1,100 feet above sea level. The grounds of the campus are appro-

32 Oakwood College 

GENERAL INFORMATION. HISTORY, 
AND DEVELOPMENT 

Oakwood College is the out2rro\\1:h of the Oakwood Industrial 
School founded in 1896 by the General Conference of Seventh-day 
Adventists. After a number of years of successful operation the 
name was changed to Oakwood Manual Training School. In 1917. 
two rears of college work were offered, and the school was kno\Mi 
as Oakwood Junior College. In the spring of 1943. another forward 
step was taken by the institution when it was advanced to the 
status of a senior collesre. Since that time it has been known as 
Oakwood College. In 1964 Oakwood College became a member of 
the United Negro College Fund. 

The institution is o\\Tied and operated by the General Con- 
ference of Seventh-day Adventists as a college for Christian higher 
education. 

ACCREDITATION 

Oakwood College is accredited by the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools and is approved by the Seventh-day Adventist 
Boara of Regents. 

OBJECTIVES 

Oakwood College builds its offerings around the philosophy 
that "true education means more than the pursual of a certain 
course of study. It means more than the preparation for the life 
that now is. It has to do \\-ith the whole being. ... It is the 
harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the 
spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in 
this world, and for the higher joy of wider servdce in the world to 
come." — Education, p. 13. 

In harmony \\dth this philosophy of education, the administra- 
tion and faculty of Oakwood College have defined its objectives as 
follows: 

Spiritual: 

The purpose of the spiritual and religious instruction at Oak- 
wood College is to reflect fully the image of Jesus Christ through 
emphasis on the development of character and talent, the nobilitv' 
of ambition, the keenness of perception \Ndth sound judgment; so 
that the student is prepared to render unselfish servdce to God and 
man. 

Intellectual: 

Consonant with the di\dne plan of education, the College 
purposes to develop within its students certain attitudes and abilities 
conducive to independent and creative thinking; to further acquaint 
them ^\i\h. the basic facts and principles of the major fields of 



General Information 33 

knowledge, together with a more intensive concentration in one 
or more of these fields. The College seeks further to help the 
student to develop proficiency in the use of the English language; 
to encourage an unbiased attitude on controversial issues; and to 
motivate v^thin the student a persistent and continuing intellectual 
curiosity. 

Cultural: 

As an integral part of the total development of the student, the 
College endeavors to develop in its youth desirable personalities, 
refined tastes, and correct usage of the social graces which will 
prepare them for participation in social and recreational activities, 
and to understand and respect persons of varied backgrounds and 
experiences. 

Personal Adjustment: 

The College seeks to help the student understand himself, to 
the end that he may make the maximum use of whatever powers 
he has, both for his own and for the social good. While the student 
must learn the subjects that are offered in the curriculum, he must 
also find out about himself and how he may best fit into the social 
order. 

Physical: 

The physical education program of the College attempts to 
give each student an intelligent understanding of the standards 
which govern the function and care of the body. It seeks also to 
establish in the student a consistency in the observance of habits 
and practices which engender maximum physical vitality and 
health. Emphasis is placed on the proper use of leisure time, either 
through some activity worthy of physical development or in some 
gymnastic enterprise given under supervision. 

Vocational: 

Oakwood College endeavors to teach its students the dignity of 
labor, to train them in practical work which will enable them to 
cope with life's situations, to impart skill and knowledge in certain 
vocations best suited to the students' interests and aptitudes, and to 
offer professional and preprofessional courses which wdll aid the 
students in their choice of a vocation. 

VETERAN AND FOREIGN STUDENT TRAINING 

The Veterans Administration has approved the College for the 
training of veterans. A Certificate of Eligibility must be submitted 
to the Registrar's Office at the time of initial registration, in order 
that the certification of the veteran's enrollment may be made to 
the Veterans Administration. 

The College has also been approved by the United States Office 
of Immigration for the training of foreign students.

GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICE 

During registration each student is assigned a curriculum ad- 
viser to assist in program planning. Throughout the school year 
the curriculum adviser will be available for advice and guidance on 
academic questions. 

Although curriculum advisers may be consulted on questions 
and problems other than academic ones, students are invited to seek 
counsel from any member of the faculty. Personal problems will 
be given thoughtful consideration. Members of the faculty deem 
it a privilege to discuss with the student great principles, concepts, 
and ideas in an atmosphere of informality and friendliness. Stu- 
dents are urged to become personally acquainted with as many 
members of the faculty as possible. 

Students having difficulty resolving personal problems or mak- 
ing important decisions concerning educational or career plans 
should visit the Center for Student Development and Planning. 
Personnel trained in test administration and interpretation, guid- 
ance and counseling are available to give professional assistance. 
Personal information relating to specific students is held in strictest 
confidence by the Center and may not be released except at the 
request of the student (s) involved. 

GOVERNING STANDARDS 

It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and 
women with high standards of scholarship and the self-discipline 
necessary for Christian leadership. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded 
upon the principle that character building is the highest object of 
education and that a good name, standing for integrity, honor, and 
godliness, is the objective ahke of the student for himself and of the 
College for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established 
to provide a Christian environment in which students may prepare 



Student Life 39 

themselves for service at home and in other lands. In order to 
maintain this environment certain general rules of conduct apply. 

Student Handbook: In every community there are laws. It is 
the responsibility of every student to secure jrom the Office of Stu- 
dent Affairs and to read the rules and regulations governing student 
life at Oakwood College^ preferably before registration. Familiarity 
with and acceptance of the requirements set forth in this book will 
make life at Oakwood College more interesting and certainly more 
enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone 
on his scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct 
and his attitude toward the community in which he lives. As a 
citizen of the college community the student must realize that he 
has been admitted to a privileged group and that he has no right 
to work against that group. Any student who violates the rules of 
the College or whose conduct evidences lack of respect for the 
standards maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. 

STUDENT CITIZENSHIP 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of 
entering any department of the College is subject to its supervision 
and jurisdiction from the time of arrival in Huntsville until his 
connection is terminated by graduation or by any officially ap- 
proved withdrawal. 

The record of each student is reviewed periodically, and his 
continuation in college is based upon his attitudes and general 
conduct, as well as his scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the College are 12 
offenses which are considered to be very serious and may be cause 
for dismissal or serious disciplinary action on the first offense. 

Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of 
these practices would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College, 
the first offense may result in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose 
influence is detrimental may be asked to wdthdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately 
from the campus and may be subjected to charges of trespassing 
should he return wdthout permission from the Administration. 

Leave of Absence: Permission for an ordinary leave of absence 
from the campus may be obtained from the appropriate Residence 
Dean. Approval must also be obtained from the work superintend- 
ent. When a leave of absence involves absence from a class, per- 
mission must be obtained from the Dean of the College. When the 
leave of absence takes a student farther than the city of Huntsville, 
it must be approved by the Office of Student Life. Written permis- 



40 Oakwood College 

sion from the parent or guardian for travelling must be on file 
for everv^ student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to 
this rule is granted only to students who are both of legal age and 
self-supporting. In every case, working students must secure the 
approval of their work superintendent before presenting their re- 
quests to their respective deans. 

Attendance at Religious Services: Oakw^ood College is emphati- 
cally a Christian college. Attendance at evening w^orships, chapel, 
Friday evening vespers. Sabbath School, and Sabbath morning 
church servdce is required. 

Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an auto- 
mobile frequently mihtate against success in college, students are 
not encouraged to bring automobiles with them to the College unless 
absolutely necessary. Freshmen are not permitted to bring automo- 
biles to the College, or to the vicinity, or to operate automobiles 
owned by other individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the com- 
munity, w^ho owTi or operate any t;y^e of motor vehicle (car, motor- 
cycle, scooter, etc.) must register it -\\\\h. the Office of Security 
at the time of registration for the fall quarter, or within 24 hours 
of his arrival should he arrive after registration has been concluded 
or ^^-ithin 24 hours of its procurement within any quarter of the 
school year. Owners must have a valid operator's license and must 
show" proof of liability insurance (including medical coverage) at 
the time of registration and whenever requested by traffic enforce- 
ment personnel. 

RESIDENCE HALLS 

All unmarried students are required to - live in one of the 
College residence halls and to board in the College Cafeteria unless 
they hve with parents or with other close relatives in the City of 
Hunts\dlle. When campus housing is overcrow^ded. students age 23 
and over may apply to the Housing Committee for permission to 
live in the community. Under special circumstances, students under 
age 23 also may apply to the Housing Committee for permission 
to live off campus in an officially approved home. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a 
quarter. Failure to secure official approval to reside in the com- 
munity or to withdraw from a college residence hall when directed 
to do so will invahdate the registration of a student. Students who 
have received approval for off campus li\ing may be called into the 
College residence halls at any time the administration deems neces- 
sary for reasons of discipline or under-utilization of available space 
in the residence halls. 



Admission Standards 41 

Dormitory Supervision: Each dormitory is under the direction 
of a Residence Dean. The Residence Deans have general supervision 
of the well-being of the students under their charge.

The College owtis thirty units of one- and two-bedroom apart- 
ments which are available for married students. These apartments

students may live. For information write the Business Manager.

health, and a desire to pursue the program outlined in this bulletin 
and the student handbook. Although religious affiliation is not 
a requirement for admission, all students are expected to live by 
the policies and standards of the College as a church-related in- 
stitution. Oakwood College reserves the right to deny admission 
to any student who in the judgment of the Committee on Admis- 
sions may not benefit from the total program of the College or

WHEN TO APPLY OR REAPPLY 

New students are urged to submit applications not later than 
the last term of the senior year of high school. Applications sub- 
mitted at the beginning of the senior year will sometimes enable 
the College to suggest ways of strengthening the student's prepara- 
tion. Because of the di-fficulty sometimes encountered during the 
summer months in obtaining necessary transcripts, test scores, and 
recommendations, more time will be necessary for processing late 
applications. 

Students in residence may submit re-appHcations without 
charge until the end of the Spring quarter. Thereafter the regular 
application fee of $5 will be required until July 31, after which the 
fee becomes $10. 

What to Bring: Every student who rooms in the school home 
should bring his own bedding — four sheets, four pillowcases, a pil-

ser scarfs, cover for study table, laundry bag, pictures, and other 
furnishings he may want to make his room pleasant and homelike.

time after being issued an F-1 (student's) visa, will not be admitted unless he intends 
to attend the school specified in that visa. Therefore, if before he departs for the 
United States the student decides to attend some other school, he should communicate 
with the issuing American consular office for the purpose of having such other school 
specified in the visa. Any other nonimmigrant student will not be admitted to the 
United States unless he intends to attend the school specified in the Form 1-20 or Form 
1-94 which he presents to the immigration officer at the port of entry. 

A nonimmigrant student who does not register at the school specified in his tem- 
porary entry permit (Form 1-94), or whose school attendance is terminated, or who 
takes less than a full course of study, or who accepts unauthorized employment, 
thereby fails to maintain his status and must depart from the United States immedi- 
ately. 

WITHDRAWAL PROCEDURE 

When a student decides to discontinue his course of study, he 
should complete a Change of Program voucher, which may be se- 
cured from the Records Office. Other regulations in this respect are 
listed under the captions "Change of Program," "Refunds," and 
"Checkout Procedures." In addition, dormitory students should 
leave a Dormitory Departure card, properly completed, with the 
Dean of the home. These cards serve as a basis for issuing credit on 
accoimting records. 

Students accepted on the Work Scholarship Plan should make 
arrangements for changes in their original contract with the head 
of the Department and also with the Director of Student Finance.

ACADEMIC POLICIES 

THE ACADEMIC YEAR 

The academic or college year starts in September and ends 
in August. When reference is made to courses offered in even or 
odd-numbered years, it is intended to indicate the year beginning 
in September. The academic year consists of three quarters, each 
of which covers a period of approximately eleven weeks and a 
summer session of six weeks. 

COURSE NUMBERS AND SYMBOLS 

Courses of instruction are classified as lower division and 
upper division. Lower division courses are nimibered 100 through 
299. Upper division courses are numbered 300 through 499. 
Courses numbered 1 through 99 are non-credit courses but may 
be required of certain students. 

The lower division courses are open to freshmen and sopho- 
mores and should be completed before the student progresses to 
the junior and senior years. See Admission to the Upper Division. 

Code to course symbols are: 

AR — Art MA — Mathematics 

BA — Business Admin. ML — Modem Languages

COURSE SCHEDULES 

Each year the College pubhshes a Schedule of Classes which 
lists the courses offered, the time of meetings, the rooms, and the 
instructors. 

The College reserves the right to cancel any course offered for 
which there is not an enrollment of at least six students, and to 
limit the number of students in a class when limited enrollment 
is advantageous. 

CREDIT 

The unit of credit is the quarter hour. A quarter hour is the 
amount of credit earned for the satisfactory completion of one hour 



50 Oakwood College 

a week lecture or recitation or at least two hours a week laboratory 
practice throughout one quarter. 

Hyphenated courses (101-102) indicate that the sequence of 
courses should be taken in order. 

4-4 indicates that the course carries four quarter hours of 
credit each quarter for two quarters, which, being hyphenated, 
should be taken in sequence. 

4,4 indicates that the course may be taken out of sequence. 

UPPER DIVISION STANDING 

A student entering his third year of college work who lacks 
any of the prescribed courses of the lower division, which are pre- 
liminary to upper division work for a degree, must first register for 
such prescribed courses of the lower division and then complete his 
progrcim from the upper division. 

A student who has completed a two-year curriculum and later 
becomes a candidate for a degree must fulfill all the requirements 
for that degree, including entrance to upper division, requirements 
of the upper division, residence, and quality points. 

STUDY LOAD 

The normal full-time load is 12-16 credit hours per quarter. 
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors may register for 1 8 credits if their 
cumulative grade-point average or previous quarter grade-point 
average is 3.00 (B). Only Seniors with a GPA of 2.50 or above are 
permitted to take 18 or more hours. Courses being taken by Home 
Study Correspondence or at another school (visiting student pro- 
gram) are included to make up your TOTAL STUDY LOAD dur- 
ing any quarter. Class load for SUMMER SCHOOL is: 12 hours 
(full load), 16 hours (maximum load), "B" average necessary to 
take 13-16 hours. 

Students Hving in college residence halls may not register for 
fewer than 9 quarter hours without permission of the Dean of the 
College. Students are not permitted to add to their load by giving 
or receiving instruction away from the College, or registering for 
correspondence work, without permission of the Academic Policies 
Committee. 

The follovsring study loads will satisfy the authorities indicated. 

1. Immigration Authorities 12 quarter hours 

2. Selective Service 12 

3. Veterans 12 

4. H. E. W. 12 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Students are classified by the Director of Admissions and Rec- 
ords at the beginning of the school year. The student's classifica- 
tion for the year is determined by the amount of credit he has 



Academic Policies 51 

earned at the beginning of the college year. A student who may 
meet the hour requirement, but whose cumulative Grade Point 
Average is below 2.00 will be hsted in the next lower class until 
his cumulative Grade Point Average is raised to 2.00 or better. 
Student classes are organized early in the fall quarter according 
to the following levels of academic achievement: 

Freshman 0-43 quarter hours 

Sophomore 44 quarter hours 

Junior 92 quarter hours 

Senior 140 quarter hours 

Postgraduate Students: Students who have completed a bacca- 
laureate degree and are registered for work which cannot apply 
toward an advanced degree. 

Special Students: Students who have not completed the en- 
trance requirements and are not eligible to enroll in a degree 
program. 

REGISTRATION 
For all students, new and returning alike, registration includes 
counseling, selection of courses, and payment of fees. Students are 
expected to register on the registration date as announced in the 
Bulletin. A registration envelope with full information on pro- 
cedures will be issued at the Registrar's Office to the student for- 
mally accepted. 

Students are not officially registered for a course until the 
instructor has received an approved class card. All students, both 
old and new, are expected to register at the beginning of each 
quarter at the time designated by the College. All students en- 
rolled in the College must pre-register for each quarter during the 
periods designated in the College Bulletin. Any student who fails 
to pre-register will be subject to a cash fine of $10.00. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

Permission to register late must be obtained from the Academic 
Dean. Students failing to register during the scheduled registration 
periods will be assessed a late registration fee of $25. Class periods 
missed because of late registration will be counted as absences from 
the class. Ordinarily^ no student will be allowed to register after the 
designated registration days have passed. All classwork missed must 
be made up to the teacher's satisfaction. 

Permission to register late should ordinarily be obtained before 
registration day. In any case the Dean must be presented satis- 
factory evidence to indicate that it was not possible for the student 
to register on the designated date. 

DROP, ADD. WITHDRAWAL 

If you think you want to add or drop a class or change a section 
after having completed registration for credit or audit, follow the 
procedures: 



52 Garwood College 

Drop. Before the deadline (and sixth week of instruction), 
1) Get a drop voucher from the Registrar's Office, 2) Fill it out 
and secure signatures of your academic advisor, class teacher, 
Business Office, Academic Dean, and Registrar, 3) Return the 
voucher to the Registrar's Office immediately^ for the effective date 
is not that written on the voucher but the date on which it is turned 
in to the Registrar, 4) Expect a "W" (withdrew) for the class if 
you drop before the sixth-week deadline, a "WP" (withdrew pass- 
ing) or "WF" (withdrew failing) if you drop after the deadline, 
5) Forgetting or failing to drop officially through processing a 
voucher will result in an automatic "WF" or other final grade 
based on class work completed, 6) Drops are not permitted during 
the last two (2) weeks of a quarter, and 7) Refunds for dropped 
classes are discussed in this bulletin under the heading of "Refunds." 

Add. By or before the last day of registration, follow the same 
steps (1-3) as listed above under "Drop." Courses may not be added 
after registration closes although more time is allowed for dropping. 

A charge of $5.00 is made for each change of schedule except 
when the change is made necessary by a) cancellation of a sched- 
uled class or b) change of class time which renders it impossible for 
the student to maintain his or her original schedule. 

PRE-EXAMINATION WEEK 

Pre-examination Week is the week that precedes the final quar- 
ter examinations. During this week, no off-campus field trips, major 
examinations or extracurricular activities requiring student partici- 
pation may be scheduled. This week should enable students to de- 
vote full time to the completion of course projects and to prepare for 
final examinations. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Finals, All students must take the final examination in each 
course at the time listed in the official time schedule or no credit will 
be granted for the course. Exceptions may be made only by the Dean 
of the College. Should the examination schedule require a student 
to complete four examinations in one day, arrangements may be 
made with the dean to complete one of the examinations at another 
time. "Exam Permits," representing paid financial accounts, are 
required for taking finals. 

SPECIAL EXAMS 

A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having compe- 
tency or exposure in a certain area covered by a required course 
may meet an academic requirement by passing a waiver examina- 
tion, an examination for credit, or the CLEP examination. Each of 
these examinations should be equal in scope and difficulty to a final 
examination in the course. 

Not more than forty-eight (48) hours of the total credit hours 



Academic Policies 53 

required for graduation may be earned by the examination for 
credit and/or the CLELP subject examination. The deadhne for 
seniors challenging a course by examination is the mid-term of the 
Winter Quarter. 

The various departments concerned will decide what subjects 
are open for examination for credit. The student must obtain a 
score on any such examination which would equate with a "C" 
grade in the course in order to be eligible for credit or waiver. 

A student may not take a more advanced course in a given 
area while waiting for permission from the Academic Policies Com- 
mittee to sit for a lower level course. No credit will be recorded until 
the student has earned at least twelve (12) hours at Oakwood with 
a ininiinurn GPA of 2.00. 

Grades below "D" may not be changed by these examinations. 
A student may not take a proficiency examination for credit for 
the same course more than once. 

Examination for Waiver. Students who present satisfactory 
evidence of having competence in an area covered by a required 
course may apply to the Academic Policies Committee to take an 
examination for waiver. After being given approval by the Com- 
mittee and having paid $25.00 to the Accounting Office as an exami- 
nation fee (non-refundable) the student will be administered the 
examination. If he earns a satisfactory score on the examination, 
the required course may be waived and he will be allowed to sub- 
stitute some other course in its place. Hour credit toward graduation 
cannot be earned by this examination. 

Examination for Credit. If the student can present satisfactory 
evidence of a background of formal study or competency in any 
area of the curriculum, he may be permitted by the Academic Poli- 
cies Committee to sit for a comprehensive examination covering the 
requirements for any such course taught at Oakwood and receive 
hour credit toward graduation. If such an exam is not available at 
Oakwood through CLEP, then the appropriate department prepares 
an exam. Upon approval of the Committee, the student \^dll pay to 
the Accounting Office the tuition based on $20.00 per hour of credit 
offered by the course. This fee is not refundable. The grade earned 
on the examination will be recorded. 

If your special exam is for a course already taken for which 
you received a final grade, it will be administered only during any 
quarter following the quarter for which the final grade was received. 

CLEP — College Level Examination Program. Oakwood Col- 
lege grants the appropriate credit for each subject exam passed in 
this program by the College Entrance Examination Board. The fol- 
lowing statements summarize the program: 

1. The recommended maximum niomber of CLEP credits a 



54 Oakwood College 

student may apply toward graduation is forty-eight (48) 
quarter hours. 

2. In each maior the maxiniimi number of CLEP SUBJECT 
EX.\MINATTOX credits a student may earn is determined 
by the major department. 

3. In the case of the core requirements, the Academic Pohcies 
Committee -will determine which courses can be taken bv 
the CLEP EX.\MIXATIOX and how much credit a student 
may earn from the basic core requirements ^^-ithout over- 
lapping in the subject area. 

4. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before 
credit can be granted. 

5. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course 
credit but no letter grade shall be assigned or quality points 
considered. 

6. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may 
not repeat the course for which credit was given by exam- 
ination for a grade. 

7. Incoming students ^^ishing to take the CLEP test before 
entering Oak^vood College must have the approval of the 
Office of the Registrar before the test is taken. 

8. All CLEP scores previously obtained at another school are 
subject to review by the Office of Admissions. 

9. A fee that ^^ill cover the cost of the examination and its 
administration ^^411 be charged each student desiring to take 
the CLEP examination at Oak^vood College.

GRADES AND REPORTS 

Grade reports are issued to the student and to the parents or 
guardians at the end of each quarter provided the student's account 
is in order. 

GRADING SYSTEM 
Only quarter grades are recorded on the student's permanent 
record in the college. The following system of grading and grade 
point values is used. 

Grade Points 
Grade Per Hour 

A (superior) 4.0 

A- 3.7 

B+ 3.3 

B (above average) 3.0 

B- 2.7 

C+ 2.3 

C (average) 2.0 

C- 1.7 

D+ 1.3 

D (below average) 1.0 

D- 0.7 

F (failure) 0.0 

FA (failure due to absences) 

I (incomplete) 

W (withdrew) 

WF (withdrew failing) 

WP (withdrew passing) 

AU (audit) 

NC (non-credit) 



56 Oakwood College 

GRADE-POINT AVERAGE 

The grade-point average (GPA) for the quarter is computed 
by totaling the grade points earned in all courses attempted and 
dividing by the total hours attempted. Credits for which an F or 
WF are received are included in calculating the grade-point aver- 
age. The symbols WP, AU and NC are disregarded in computing 
the grade-point average. Incompletes are not included in the 
G.P.A. until after the time specified for removal. 

PASS-OR-FAIL COURSES 

Students may take up to 12 quarter hours, in addition to Choir 
and required P. E. courses, to be applied toward graduation on a 
pass-or-fail basis. This option will be applicable to all courses except 
those in the student's major, minor, cognate courses or those that 
apply toward a teaching credential. Sophomores, juniors, and sen- 
iors having a minimum grade point average of 2.50 may take ad- 
vantage of this option. Not more than one such course per quarter 
should be taken. A grade of "P" will be equivalent to a grade of "C" 
or better; and a grade of "U" will be given in place of a "D" or "F." 
These grades will have no effect on the student's G.P.A. No credit 
will be given for a course if a student receives a "U" grade in it. If 
the student receives a "P," he will receive the same amount of credit 
as if he had taken the course on a regular basis. Teachers should 
report the actual letter grade to the Registrar's Office, where it will 
be recorded on the following basis: A, B, C — Pass or "P"; D, F — 
Unsatisfactory or "U." Deadline for taking a course on this basis 
is one week after the beginning of the quarter. 

DEAN'S LIST 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.5, who 
carry a minimum of 15 quarter hours with no grade below a B, 
and no incompletes, are eligible for membership on the dean's list. 

HONOR ROLL 

Students who carry a minimimi of 12 hours and who maintain 
a grade point average of 3.00, or above, during a given quarter with 
no grade below a "C" shall be considered HONOR STUDENTS 
for the quarter. 

HONORS CONVOCATION 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scho- 
lastic achievement, loyalty to College standards, and exemplary 
citizenship, the College conducts an annual Honors Convocation. 
To be ehgible for participation the student must have a cumulative 
grade point average of not less than 3.50 for a minimum of 24-32 
hours earned at Oakwood College or a cumulative GPA of 3.25, and 
a minimum of 33 hours earned at O. C. 



Academic Policies 57 

GRADUATION WITH DISTINCTION 

Students are graduated with honors under the following con- 
ditions: 

Honorable Mention. A student must have a grade point aver- 
age of 3.0. 

Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point average of 3.25. 

Magna Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point aver- 
age of 3.50. 

Summa Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point aver- 
age of 3.75, or above. 

INCOMPLETE WORK 

Teachers do not grant automatic grades of "I" but rather com- 
pute final grades on the basis of whatever classwork has been done. 
If, however, because of interruptive illness or other unavoidable 
circumstances, a student should desire the privilege of receiving a 
grade of "I" (Incomplete) to allow more time to fulfill class re- 
quirements, that student may apply for such a temporary grade 
by doing all of the following before the end of final exam week: 

1. Pick up and fill out a "Request and Authorization for IN- 
COMPLETE" form from the Dean's Office. 

2. Attach thereto a doctor's statement if the reason is medical, 
and 

3. Get the signatures of the class instructor, the instructor's 
department head, and the Academic Dean. 

4. Return the form to the Dean's Office and receive an answer 
from the Dean before leaving the campus. 

When an "I" is received, it may be changed to a regular grade 
when and if the classwork is completed not later than the first six 
weeks of the next quarter whether or not you are registered the next 
quarter. The '7" automatically converts to an 'T" if not removed 
within the prescribed time. Should more time because of further 
illness or unavoidable circumstances be needed to make up your 
incomplete work, you may, before the six-week period expires, re- 
quest an extension of time from the Academic Policies Committee. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION / SATISFACTORY PROGRESS 

All students whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is 
less than 2.00 shall be placed on academic probation and retained 
at Oakwood College under restricted privileges. Students whose 
grade point average is less than 1.75 must take part in the Special 
Instruction Program (SIP) conducted by our Inner College Service. 
Failure of such students to take part in the SIP may result in dis- 
missal from the College. 

A lower division student (freshman or sophomore) whose GPA 



58 Oakwood College 

is betAveen 1.25 and 1.50 should expect to be dismissed. An upper 
diAdsion student (junior or senior) whose GPA is between 1.51 and 
1.95 should expect to be dismissed or dropped. All students, lower 
and upper division, are considered eligible for financial aid when 
their academic progress is ^^dthin the parameters of the above stand- 
ards and stipulations. 

^^^len a student is dropped for the first time because of poor 
scholarship, he or she is not eligible to be considered for readmis- 
sion or reacceptance until after the end of two (2) quarters from 
the date of dismissal. When dropped the second time, the student 
becomes eligible for readmission or reacceptance after one (1) cal- 
endar year from the date of dismissal. In both cases, to be so con- 
sidered, the student must present a request to the Admissions Office. 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 is denied per- 
mission to represent the College in any official capacity or hold of- 
fice in any student organization. 

The follo^^'ing is a summary- list of requirements for a student 
on academic probation (GPA below^ 2.0) : 

1. Limit registration to class load of 14 or less hours per quar- 
ter. 

2. Include in class load at least one course in which he or she 
has received a '"D" or "F" and/or enroll in a remedial 
course as counseled by the academic advisor, and 

3. Go to the Inner College Service for assistance. 

INNER COLLEGE 

Inner College is an academic support servdce which exists 
for the purpose of helping students who need assistance in any 
academic endeavor. This is accomplished by peer-tutoring and 
academic advisement under the supervdsion of a full-time counselor- 
coordinator. The center also maintains a ^^ide variety of media 
materials and indi^ddualized study guides. The student (peer) tutors 
are generally upperclassmen recommended by the various depart- 
ments. 

The Center is located on the ground floor of Cunningham Hall 
and is open during the day and evening hours in order to accom- 
modate all students desiring such assistance. 

REPEATED COURSES 

Occasionally students express an interest in repeating a course 
if the earned grade cannot apply tow^ard graduation or for other 
reasons. 

A student may repeat a course in which he has a grade of 
"C" only by permission of the Academic Policies Committee. 

A student who has earned a grade of "D" in a major, minor, 
cognate, or in other required courses may, on the advice of his major 



Academic Policies 59 

professor, repeat the course or take another course in the same area, 
if it is recommended. In either case, the professor expresses his 
desire in writing. 

The student who repeats a course is required to register in the 
regular way, repeat all the work of the course, including laboratory 
requirements and other required activities. 

If a student repeats a course, he may receive whatever grade 
he earns, but he may not repeat the course for credit more than 
once. 

Each time a course is taken the student's record will show the 
hours for which he registered and the grade points earned. 

When a student is granted permission to repeat a course in 
which a failing grade has previously been recorded, his GPA will 
be computed on the basis of the final grade earned. However, both 
grades will appear on his transcript. 

AUDITING COURSES 

Students may audit courses only by permission of the Aca- 
demic Dean and the instructor concerned. 

Those who are interested in such courses should register at the 
time of the regular registration. 

No credit is given for a course audited. 

The tuition charged is one half the regular charge for credit. 

Laboratory courses may not be audited. 

A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a 
credit basis after the first week of the course. 

CORRESPONDENCE 

No student shall take work by correspondence or enroll in 
another institution of higher learning while registered at Oakwood 
College without permission from the Academic PoHcies Committee. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses 
taken with the Home Study Institute, which is the Extension 
Division of the Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of corre- 
spondence work or extension work credit may apply toward a 
baccalaureate degree program and twelve hours toward a two-year 
terminal program. 

Ordinarily a student will be permitted to carry correspondence 
or extension work while in residence only if the required course is 
not obtainable at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or 
transient work. In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the of- 
ficial transcript for the work completed must be in the Registrar's 
Office before April 15. 



60 Oakwood College 

All correspondence or transient work, whether taken while in 
residence or during the summer, must be approved in advance by 
the Academic Pohcies Committee and Registrar respectively. Ap- 
propriate forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Correspondence and transient credit with a "D" grade is un- 
acceptable. A course taken in residence in which the student 
earned a "D" or an "F" may not be repeated by correspondence. 
No correspondence credit will be entered upon the student's record 
until he has earned a minimum of 16 hours in residence with an 
average of at least "C." 

In no case may more than 17 hours of combined residence, 
correspondence and/or transient work be carried in a quarter with- 
out the approval of the Academic Policies Committee. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

Each student whose account is paid in full is entitled to a 
transcript of credits. The first transcript wdll be issued wdthout cost; 
all additional transcripts are issued upon payment of $1.00 per 
transcript. If the student is in arrears in payments of National 
Defense Loans and/or School Loans, the amount in arrears must be 
paid before a transcript wdll be released. 

ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Regular and prompt attendance at all classes, chapel exercises, 
worships, and work assignments is expected of all students. Lack 
of attendance, therefore, implies lack of co-operation v\dth the re- 
quirements of the College. 

CLASS ABSENCES 

Oakwood CoUege operates under the following principles: 

It is the responsibility of each instructor to interpret the Col- 
lege policies concerning attendance and to make his interpretations 
knowTi to his students at the beginning of each course. Every 
instructor has the right to count class participation including at- 
tendance in calculating the term grade. It is the responsibility of 
the student to keep a record of his absences, to keep himself in- 
formed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examina- 
tions at the time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all 
assignments when they are due. 
Other than the above, the following regulations are in effect: 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and 
laboratory appointments. No class skips are allowed. If for any 
reason the total number of absences is double the number of credit 
hours of the course per quarter, credit may, at the discretion of the 
instructor, be forfeited and a grade of "FA" be recorded. Absences 
are counted from the first official day of classes. Three tardinesses 
are equivalent to one absence. A tardiness of more than ten (10)

minutes is considered an absence. Absences immediately preceding 
or following a vacation, school picnic, or field day are counted double. 
Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the 
student from classes or relieve the student of required class work. 
The student, however, must make arrangements with the teacher 
for every anticipated school trip and other authorized leaves at 
least 48 hours before the beginning of such anticipated schedules. 
All make-up work, involving examinations and other class require- 
ments, must be made up wdthin seven (7) days after the absence 
is incurred. 

ASSEMBLY ABSENCES 

All registered students (on and off campus) are required to 
attend chapel. A student is allowed two unexcused absences from 
Assembly without penalty each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be 
made for each unexcused absence in excess of two. 

Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in 
vmting to the Registrar's Office before the very next Assembly. 
Failure to do this v^l automatically result in an unexcused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case 
of unavoidable work responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a 
permanent excuse for a quarter, a wnritten request, signed by the 
work supervisor, must be submitted to the Registrar's Office no later 
than two weeks after the beginning of each quarter. 

ERRORS AND CORRECTIONS 

Grade reports are issued at the close of each quarter. Upon the 
receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for 
correctness as to the courses recorded, credits, and grades. Any 
corrections needed must be taken care of within one week. No 
change will be made in the permanent record after two weeks from 
the issue of the grade report. 

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 

Each student is required to take a proficiency test in English 
during his junior year. This test is administered as scheduled in the 
catalog once every quarter except summer. A student is allowed to 
take the test twdce. If he fails to pass the test, he is required to enroll 
in EN 250, a two-hour course in English fundamentals, and to pass 
this course in order to qualify for graduation. By the end of the 
second quarter of his senior year, a student must have passed the 
proficiency test in English or the course in English fundamentals.

the Dental Aptitude Test, the Law School Admissions Test, the 
National Teachers' Examination, and the Admission Test for Grad- 
uate Study in Business are accepted as substitutes for the Graduate 
Record Examination. 

SEMINAR COURSES 

The only seminar courses offered are those already so an- 
nounced under departmental sections of the O. C. Bulletin. These 
require regular class attendance as based on the credit hour of 
the course. 

RESEARCH AND INDEPENDENT STUDY 

Certain departments offer a course entitled "Research and 
Independent Study" for 1 to 4 hours credit to provide qualified 
students an opportunity to work on problems or topics of special 
interest, to engage in research projects, and to do scholarly study 
as advanced work. Follo\\'ing are fundamental requirements for

schools, it is recommended that a student elect a major field of con- 
centration not later than the beginning of the second year. Majors 
and minors in the fields of business administration, history, English, 
behavioral science and political science are generally preferred, 
although other majors may be acceptable. Electives in human 
physiology and anatomy and in mathematics are quite helpful. 

The booklet, Law Schools and Bar Admission Requirements, 
gives detailed information concerning a desirable academic back- 
ground for the study of law. Interested students who desire a copy 
of this booklet should vmte to the following address:

MATHEMATICS (MA) AND PHYSICS (PH) 

The specific objectives of this department are in agreement 
with the general objectives of the college. 

Mathematics may be classified according to two general 
categories, pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure 
mathematics is very abstract, and proof (in the sense of a deductive 
system) is its most important concern. On the other hand, applied 
mathematics has arisen out of attempts to solve problems in the 
natural sciences and, in particular, the physical sciences. This 
department proposes to present these two points of view as a com- 
bined and unified whole. 

The department further proposes to develop an appreciation 
by the student of the fact that the One who created and upholds the 
universe also made the integers and gave man the mental power 
and the will to develop the rest of what is called mathematics. 

Those who plan to teach in secondary schools must also minor 
in Education, and meet the requirements for teacher certification. 



138 Oakwood College 

Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in at least one of 
the following subjects: chemistry, physics, or business administra- 
tion. 

French or German must be selected to fulfill the foreign 
language requirement. 

No grade below "C" may apply on a major or minor.

Pre-college musical experience and a natural gift for music 
are prerequisites. All students must audition for the music faculty 
before enrolling as a major or minor. For students who do not meet 
the general requirements of the department, there is a probationary 
period of one year to demonstrate sincerity of purpose, application 
and attitude. After this period, if the student passes a special exam- 
ination, he will be given full status as a music major. 

All music majors and minors will appear before the music 
faculty at the conclusion of each Spring Quarter for a jury exam- 
ination. 

Participation in a musical organization is required for each 
quarter in residence. Voice majors must be in the college choir. 
They will elect piano unless they are able to pass the Piano Pro- 
ficiency Examination. Organ majors vdll elect piano, and piano 
majors will elect organ.

NURSING 

NURSING (NU) 



Assistant Professor: Meyer (Head) 

Instructors: A. Dormer, C. Donner, 

Payton, White 



An associate in science degree nursing curriculum is offered 
to selected men and women students. 

The curriculum, approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing, 
is composed of general education courses and nursing courses. The 
program may be completed in seven quarters. Upon completion of 
the program, the student will be awarded an Associate in Science de- 
gree and will be eligible to write the state board test pool examina- 
tions for licensure as a registered nurse. Graduates will be prepared 
to serve in staff nurse positions and provide care that is common, 
recurring and immediate in a variety of settings. 

One class is admitted to the nursing program each year in the 
Fall quarter. Students wishing to take part of their general educa- 
tion courses before taking their nursing courses may do so. The 
general education courses are the regularly constituted courses of 
the college, and are taken with other college students. 

In addition to regular college entrance requirements, prospec- 
tive nursing students must: 

1 . Have credit for all the prerequisite secondary courses listed 
on page 79. 



Departments of Instruction 151 

2. Have an overall GPA above 2.5. 

3. Send to admission office standard scores for ACT or SAT 
tests. 

4. Have a physical examination at the beginning of each 
school year and offer evidence of good physical and mental 
health. 

Students will be notified of acceptance into the Nursing Pro- 
gram. 

Students seeking admission by transfer will be considered ac- 
cording to Oakwood College's policy on the admission of transfer 
students. All students must be in residence for two quarters of the 
program. 

Nursing students must maintain the following standards if 
they are to remain in the program: 

1. Maintain an overall GPA of 2.00. 

2. Attain a grade of "C" in Growth and Development, and in 
each science and nursing course. 

Students must demonstrate safe clinical laboratory perform- 
ance as defined by written criteria available in the Nursing Depart- 
ment Office. Failure in either theoretical or clinical laboratory per- 
formance will require repetition of both parts of the course. 

Whenever a student does not maintain an overall GPA of 2.00 
in the program, he will be dropped from the nursing courses until 
he has demonstrated the ability to maintain a 2.00 average in his 
general education courses. The nursing faculty may then approve 
re-entry into the program. 

Through a planned system of advisement, a program is 
planned to meet individual needs of students. Faculty advisors will 
counsel students on transferable credits and requirements for aca- 
demic mobility. 

The student who plans to progress to a baccalaureate degree 
program in nursing should consult the bulletin of the school of his 
choice. 

A year of college chemistry is usually required.

Associate Professor: Melancon 
Assistant Professors: Pitt, Wright 
Instructors: Butler, Lavender 
RELIGION (RE) AND BIBLICAL LANGUAGES (BL) 

The sub-areas of this division are three, namely: (1) RELI- 
GION, (2) THEOLOGY, and (3) BIBLICAL LANGUAGES. 

The RELIGION major follows a tailored course of study to 
prepare for Bible Worker Instructorship, Classroom Teaching (Ele- 
mentary, Secondary, and Higher Education levels). Literature 
Ministry, Medical Ministry, Foreign Missions, and Laymen Leader- 
ship. THEOLOGY is for the major who looks to the Pastoral, Evan- 
gelistic ministries (wdth further ministerial training at the SDA 
Theological Seminary of Andrews University), and to the Military 
Chaplaincy. BIBLICAL LANGUAGES as an area offers a minor 
which includes Greek and Hebrew. 

A guide to the specialty areas of full-time teachers in the de- 
partment is as follows: 

Lavender (Old Testament Studies) 

Melancon (New Testament Studies) 

Pitt (Systematic Theology) 

Reaves (Homiletics and Urban Ministry) 



DEPARTMliNTS OF INSTRUCTION 155 

Rogers (Biblical Languages) 

Wright (Pastoral Ministry) 

Because of the large number of persons preparing for the 
pastoral/evangelistic ministry and the variety of new areas within 
the church for religious services, IT IS STRONGLY RECOM- 
MENDED THAT EVERY STUDENT IN THEOLOGY HAVE 
ALSO A DOUBLE (or SECOND) MAJOR in which case no 
MINOR is required. Such a student also takes a shorter list of 
"COGNATE" classes. 

The entire mosaic of courses in this division is designed to 
develop within the student a deep appreciation for the importance 
of the Bible in determining the true philosophy of life, to encourage 
the application of the teachings of Jesus Christ to the problems of 
our day, and to provide training for students who desire to serve the 
church and humanity. 

A two-year BIBLE WORKER INSTRUCTOR course for which 
the student receives an Associate Degree Diploma is described in 
the present Bulletin on page 157 under the heading ASSOCIATE 
IN ARTS DEGREE IN BIBLE WORKER INSTRUCTORSHIP.

vided but the student is expected to provide his furnishings and

will be added to the entrance fee. This deposit is held in trust until 
(upon receipt of a satisfactory inspection report) the student va-

the school year. The cost of any arrangements necessary to correct 
the misuse or abuse of College property and equipment on the part 
of a student will be charged to that student and the amount will be 
deducted from the housing deposit. Excessive abuse, the correction 
of which requires the use of the entire deposit before the end of the 
school year will necessitate a new cash deposit before the student 
will be permitted to register the following quarter. In cases where 
the abuse is judged to be a chronic characteristic of the student, he 
may be asked to give up his quarters and wdthdraw from the 
residence hall. This of course will jeopardize the student's continued 
matriculation at the College.

rangements may be made with the Accounting Office to have 
charged to their accounts 10 percent of their earnings for tithe. 
These funds will be transferred to the local conference treasurer. 

PROPERTY INSURANCE 

Oakwood College is not responsible for the loss of private 
property by fire, or other causes. It is recommended that all stu- 
dents arrange for proper insurance coverage for their personal 
property. 

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID 

Parents have an obligation to pay for the education of their 
children. They are expected to continue to provide, as well as they 
are able, the basic essentials of life whether the student Hves at 
home or on a coUege campus. 

A student should provide a reasonable part of the total amount 
required to meet college expenses by accepting employment. Be- 
heving in the inspired words that "systematic labor should consti- 
tute a part of the education of youth" (E. G. White) the college 
provides many on-campus jobs for students. 

The Primary purpose of the Financial Aid Program is to 
provide assistance to students who, without such aid, would be 
unable to attend college. In selecting students to receive financial 
assistance, the college will also place emphasis upon academic 
achievement and character. 

Students accepted for enroUment at Oakwood College may 
apply for Financial Aid through the following programs: 

WORK SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College makes provision for self-assistance for students 
by offering work scholarships. 

Students' work records are filed by the employer showing the 
employer's evaluation of the student's work habits covering his 
attendance, dependabihty, cooperation, skill and speed. 

Work may be assigned in the service departments, the ad- 
ministrative offices, and in the industries of the College. The in- 



168 Oakwood College 

dustries are operated by the College to provide work for the stu- 
dents. These industries do business with customers that require 
daily schedules. They must have a uniform working force. Stu- 
dents assigned to these industries must continue their work sched- 
ules to the end of the term. Any student who drops his work 
schedule without making proper arrangements may be dropped 
from class attendance until such arrangements are made, and his 
account becomes immediately payable in cash. 

To the best of its ability, the College makes an effort to provide 
students with jobs; however, it cannot guarantee work to a student 
even though his application may have been accepted on a plan 
calling for an approximate number of hours of work per week. 
Some students choose class schedules with classes so scattered that 
a reasonable work program is impossible. Some are physically or 
emotionally unable to work. Others, for various reasons, fail to 
meet work assignments. It is the responsibility of the student to 
render acceptable service to his employer in order to retain a job. 

Work assignments are retained on the basis of scholarship, 
dependabihty, and conduct. 

VETERANS 

Oakwood College is approved by the Veterans' Administration 
as an accredited training institution. Those who qualify for edu- 
cational benefits should contact the nearest Veterans Administra- 
tion Office. A certificate of ehgibility wdll be issued by the Veterans 
Administration. Veterans are required to maintain satisfactory prog- 
ress as Hsted on page 169. 

LITERATURE EVANGELIST SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College participates in the Seventh-day Adventist Student 
Colporteur Scholarship Program. Information concerning this pro- 
gram may be obtained from the Local Conference Publishing De- 
partment, your minister, or the Coordinator of Literature Industry. 
Students having colporteur scholarships must make regular pay- 
ments on or before the date of registration or have their publishing 
houses send us a list of confirmation on the scholarships. This should 
be done before the day of registration. 

DEFERRED PAYMENT OF EDUCATIONAL COST

tional expenses in convenient monthly installments at low interest 
rates, the following plans are offered: Write for application to one

est cost, with the Federal Government paying part of the interest 
for qualified students.

accredited public or private nonprofit college or university is

rians and $450 to salutatorians. In addition to the above, students
